Abstract:

The papers of Thomas O. Mabbott document his scholarship and reflect his leisure time interests. The first series consists of nine boxes of personal papers, such as certificates, diplomas, photographs, and correspondence.

This correspondence includes letters from: Walter R. Benjamin, Clarence S. Brigham, S. Foster Damon, August Derleth, J. Milton French Clarence Gohdes, Charles F. Heartman, Philip Jordan, John W. Ostrom, Mary E. Phillips, Frank L. Pleadwell, Arthur H. Quinn, G.E.B. Saintsbury, Vincent Starrett, William P. Trent, Robert W.G. Vail, and J.H. Whitty.

The next two series represent Mabbott's life's work as a scholar. The "literary interests" section reflects his reading and research subjects. Included are notes on authors from William Blake and John Milton to Washington Irving and Mark Twain. There are also articles by Mabbott and others on a variety of literary subjects.

The Edgar Allan Poe series is the largest in the collection, nearly thirty-five boxes documenting the main thrust of Mabbott's research career. These research files relate to specific Poe works, published and unpublised articles about Poe by Mabbott and others, copies of Poe's writing, and copies of journals in which his works originally appeared.

The Collected Works of Edgar Allan Poe edited by Thomas O. Mabbott is found here in manuscript form, complete with discarded plans, illustrations, page proofs, contracts, and reviews.

The next four series represent Mabbott's other interests. There are 3 boxes of broadsides and materials relating to 15th century prints. Another 3 boxes contain certificates, auction catalogs, and articles about his special hobby, numismatics. One other box contains correspondence and published material relating to his interest in newspaper collecting.

The writings of Maureen Cobb Mabbott and her correspondence make up the final series.
